Michi Nakanishi, Ju:no 

Chef Profile

"I create a culture here (that's) like real Japanese dining," says Michi Nakanishi, the proprietor, coordinator and sushi chef for the relatively newly opened Ju:no.

With a slender bar and a tidy interior, the space is classy, yet the prices are extremely approachable. Likewise, the expansive menu features everything from more exotic sashimi to the more familiar and safe California rolls.

With a humble opening last July, Ju:no is tucked away on SW Century Drive. The space is meticulously kept, and keeps a fun and unexpected soundtrack; anything from indie pop songs to weird electronica. The space and the menu feels personally curated by Nakanishi. And it is.

"In Japan, women do not have much opportunity for what they can do," she said. "Here, I feel like there's more opportunity for everyone—men and women. If they want to, if they believe in it, they can do it."
